Summary

The mountains found here tower above Lofoten & have year round appeal with world class rock, ice, skiing & trail running options all within an hour or two of the CBD.

Description

The most recently released guide to the rock is ´Stetind and Narvik, dancing on the devils dancefloor´

Rick McGregor has published some descriptions of ice along the E10 to Sweden. These are freely available online: http://kiwiclimber.se/iceclimbing/iceguide/iceguide.pdf

Certified, locally based guides are available from https://www.bergtagen.no/ & https://www.fjellforerinord.com/

Access issues

The tourist website sucks. The TL/DR is either get the sleeper train from Sweden into Narvik (via Stockholm or Kiruna) or Fly (into Evenes). For international travellers, the train option is usually cheaper and more relaxing.

Connecting buses run between Narvik, Evenes & Lofoten. Search here:

Swedish rail here:

Approach

Peak rock climbing season is June to September.

Ice climbing is usually best December to March.

The best skiing is February to April
